Second Monday Book Group

 

This group meets on the second Monday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and goes by the name of Circle 13.  After a brief time of fellowship, the group gathers for a discussion of a pre-selected book.  This group meets in various members homes.  Please call the Church office for more details and the location of the next group.

 

Third Thursday Lunch at Noon

 

Informal and fun, with lots of laughs and fellowship, we will meet at "unique" neighborhood restaurants on the third Thursday each month.  The goal is to enjoy the ambiance of "Baltimore's Best."  A carpool leaves the church parking lot at 11:30 a.m. or simply arrive at the restaurant by noon. Details will be in the bulletin or church website. Please call the church office for RSVP information.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

 

This group meets on the third and fourth Tuesday in the Library at 2:00 p.m.  Do you like to knit or crochet? Would you like to join others from TPC in a unique ministry of care and prayer? Even if unable to join the group of committed knitters, you can be a part of this outreach ministry. Knit at home or at TPC. Shawls and lap blankets are made and given to those experiencing an illness or loss. Prayer cards are included and visits made to those in need of some TLC from TPC.  To find out more information about the Prayer Shawl Ministry, please use this form.

 

Mustard Seed Prayer Group

 

This group offers prayers for members and friends referred to them. Also, they seek volunteers for their group who are willing to pray for others.

 

Outdoor Labyrinth and Community Garden

 

We have an outdoor labyrinth on Highland Avenue. In ancient times, the labyrinth was a ritual walk to sites in the holy land to meet Jesus. Through the centuries, the labyrinth has evolved into intricate and simple patterns of walking to help people center and pray. The walk in itself inspires the silence and the joy of your soul. A mailbox on the path contains some suggestions for personal prayer.

 

TPC has been working a Community Garden now for about three years, donating vegetables and flowers to nearby ACTC - an assistance food center in Towson.  The garden is truly a community venture, with all ages working in it about eight months of the year.  We have expanded its reach by placing  a meditation area nearby, adding bird houses and a bee hive, and inviting campers from Camp BeeTree to visit and learn more about the garden in the summer.  Church school children visit in the spring.

Sunday Morning Book Group

 

This adult study group meets each Sunday morning from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. to discuss the works of theologians, current authors, and related readings from the Bible.  Writings of a variety of Christian thinkers are chosen by class consensus for their inspiration about God at work in our lives and the challenges of Christian service in today’s world. The book for the 2015 fall season is What We Talk About When We Talk About God - How We Can Return Vitality and Vibrancy to Our Lives of Faith Today" by Rob Bell. Please use this form to find out more about the Sunday Morning Book Club.

For over 45 years, Towson Presbyterian Church has offered a class each Sunday morning for adults with special needs.

The class is held each Sunday (September through May), from 10:00 a.m.  to 11:00 a.m. and includes a Bible lesson, prayer, crafts, and music.
